Gladioli @ Inverleigh, Australia

About 100 kilometres southwest of central Melbourne, Gladioli - a restaurant set in a weatherboard house surrounded by gardens in the idyllic semi-rural town of Inverleigh - is ideal for long, lazy lunches. 

Book ahead for a five-course tasting menu devised by chef Matthew Dempsey, who grew up in rural western Victoria and insists on using local, seasonal produce - carrots, raisins, olive oil & chestnuts.

Your meal might include lamb bred on a family-run pasture only 10 minutes away from the restaurant, paired with berries plucked from a hill up the road, plus leek, swede & parmesan ...

 ... or other thoughtfully put-together combinations that spark culinary synergy, such as prawns & mussels with radish, miso & green tea, or pork, horseradish & mustard, or apples, scones & cream.

  1. Lovely, a home-based eatery. We have one here too, a retired Austrian seaman. They say the food is really good but I've never been. They tell me he has lots of dogs all over the house...
